So this wont be a long post, but it is something that has been on my mind for several months. Memorial Day Weekend we were home in Iowa to visit family. And as usual we were putting flowers on graves. Well it was pointed out to me that next year, I will be the same age my dad was when he passed. I had never really though about it and it hit me kind of hard. I guess the biggest take away is that tomorrow is never promised. So two simple questions comes to mind when you realize this. If you were on your death bed to today, what do you wish you would have done more of? And second, what is stopping you?
This is video 2 of 3 from my trip to Witchita to see family. We spend sometime at the Botanica Garden in Witchita, they had a really cool butterfly exhibit and then we went to the Sedgwick zoo. We had a lot of fun and I want to thank my cameraman assistant Bently. He did a really good job. You can check out the video here: https://youtu.be/Pe5fM5k_sZE
This weeks video was the beginning of Labor day weekend. Paula and I went to Wichita KS to see my family. In this video we get a chance to catch a game at Busch stadium and explore Jefferson city, MO a little bit on our way. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/X7OxcdeYn_U
Hey everyone, I’m Russ and I love to travel and explore this great country. I currently, work a full time job in higher education so most of my traveling is between terms, long weekends and semester breaks. Working on going from part time travel to full time. This weekend Paula and I took a day trip north to Door County to look at the fall colors. We had great weather and we saw so much beauty. Of course we took back roads all the way. Along the way we stopped at the Wind Point light house and in little pub in Kewaunee, WI. When in Kewaunee check out Rick and Sally’s Bucket House. I had the Bucket burger, it was awesome. I hope you enjoy it. As always you can find the video on my YouTube channel. Here is the direct link to the video: https://youtu.be/VZDTDAnqw2o
This weekend it was time to clean out and put the campervan into storage. Most likely it will be there for the winter. In the mean time i will be looking at mini school buses. In this weeks video we prep the van for storage. You can find it here, I hope you enjoy it.
This week has been crazy for me. Since deciding I had to let the campervan go I needed to find a new daily driver for work. Although I found one pretty quickly, I needed a bit of work and had some puzzling symptoms. Well after a lot of trouble shooting it is finally good to go and I can reliable get back and forth to work. Now I can start to think about my next camper project.
In this weeks video I want to share a bit of the weekend I had with my daughter a Universal Studios Orlando. We both had a great time. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/pNqO7NF84FYp
This will be a short update post. Something happened over the weekend that will change my travel dreams. I will be putting together a short video tonight after work explaining what has happened and what it will mean. Keep an eye out for the video.
I had this great idea to build a box to place on top of the van to carry all my camping gear. I could then just pull the box down when I’m not on the road and all my gear could easily be stored in one place. I ran into an issue with raising and lowering the box, it was heavier than I expected it would be. So I decided to build a lift for that purpose. Here is the video for that project.
Just put up a few of the pictures I took at the game on July 20th. It was a fun game and a very nice stadium. You can find the pictures here: http://theprudenttraveler.com/some-of-my-photos/
Just got this weeks video up. Sorry about it being a couple days late, but I was traveling. This week I share my exploration of the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area. It was very nice, but a wet and humid day so I didn’t do as much as I would have liked to. Then I made my way over to Tampa Bay to catch a baseball game. One more stadium off the bucket list!
